Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"[Perry] has rarely been less convincing than when locking and loading from his home arsenal or dangling from a decaying Detroit edifice."
‑ Ben Kenigsberg, Time Out
"A strong candidate for dumbest film of the year ..."
‑ Eric Hynes, Village Voice
"At least this confirms my long-held suspicion that Tyler Perry is drawn to bad scripts whether he wrote them or not."
‑ Eric D. Snider, EricDSnider.com
"Never quite rises above a run-of-the-mill, cop-chases-killer-thriller flick, or much expands beyond would happen if an hour-long TV drama was given an extra half-hour to stretch."
‑ Neil Pond, American Profile
"If you crave a genial crime thriller about a forensic psychologist then go and buy a boxset of Cracker. Alex Cross is simply an inexcusable misfire."
‑ Ben Rawson-Jones, Digital Spy
"Alex Cross is coarse, punishing, and, in all the ways that matter, conscienceless ..."
‑ David Edelstein, New York Magazine/Vulture
"For a franchise with an off-the-charts nuanced thinker as its protagonist, Alex Cross isn't very smart."
‑ Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post
"The cliched plot and terrible dialogue make this so-called "thriller" nearly unbearable."
‑ John Hanlon, John Hanlon Reviews
"Suffering from delusions of franchise, this is more Scooby-Doo than Silence of the Lambs, and bears all the hallmarks of a cult bad film in the making."
‑ Murray Robertson, The List
"A lot of rather unpleasant things unfold, delivered with a consummate laziness that it's terribly hard to engage with."
‑ Ross Jones-Morris, HeyUGuys
"So cloddish, slapdash, gracelessly written, and visually fugly that it's difficult to distinguish Perry's limitations in the role from those of the whole unpleasant enterprise."
‑ Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
"Perry's supposed to be its center. And as an actor - certainly as a movie star - he's absolutely nowhere to be found."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"Where to start with all the things wrong with this film?"
‑ Matt Neal, The Standard
"Cohen slices and dices the finale so much you cannot fathom it."
‑ Graham Young, Birmingham Mail
"The only appeal here is the sick kick of watching a franchise blow itself to bloody stumps."
‑ Matt Mueller, Total Film
